These are exciting times at ISB. Since 1979, we have seen thousands of students, parents and staff go through our doors as they relocate to other parts of the world. Some have stayed for a year or so and others have spent most of their student life at ISB. What binds us together is this unique shared experience that becomes a part of who we are, no matter where we may be today.
